Avios

Air miles are something I only began collecting last year, but in that time I’ve been able to build them up through things like ordering takeaways, online shopping and using travel websites. The British Airways Avios programme is, for me in the United Kingdom, the most useful in terms of flight routes. The App is … More Avios

Bangkok to Chiang Mai

There are several ways to travel between Chiang Mai and Bangkok, but if you’re backpacking and on a budget then it’s probably best if you take the overnight sleeper train or an overnight bus. Not only will this mean you don’t waste any of your days travelling, but you combine the cost of transport with saving the cost of … More Bangkok to Chiang Mai

5 March Return Flights from Glasgow for Under £30

Despite Ryanair cutting the amount of routes from Glasgow to Europe from 23 to just Dublin, Wroclaw and Kraków this winter, we still have a good few months to take advantage of their super cheap flights from Glasgow Airport. With some universities having their Spring Break this month and others ending at the end of it, March is a perfect … More 5 March Return Flights from Glasgow for Under £30

5 November Flight Deals from Glasgow for Under £25

If you’re already fed up of these cold November days, there are plenty of fantastic deals for less than £25 return. Just like my last post, I’ve used Skyscanner to collate this list of flights. Frankfurt, Germany – You can fly return to Frankfurt from Glasgow for as little as £10 all through November, making it … More 5 November Flight Deals from Glasgow for Under £25

AirAsia

We first used AirAsia on our first trip to Southeast Asia two years ago. Along with other budget airlines like Ryanair, I think AirAsia gets a bad reputation. It was a saving grace for us when we were backpacking because it shaved hours and hours off of our travel times, made border crossings much less complex for … More AirAsia

British Airways

I’ve flown with British Airways on a number of occasions in Asia, Europe and North America with both short and long haul flights. The first time I flew intercontinental I wanted to choose an airline that had an extremely reliable reputation, and afterwards most of the long haul flights I’ve taken have been with them, too. … More British Airways

China Southern Airlines

We used China Southern Airlines on a singular occasion just under two years ago, when we were travelling from the country’s capital Beijing to Zhangjiajie in the Hunan province. Like I experienced with Hong Kong Airlines, air travel in China was extremely pricey. For this two and a half hour flight we paid just over £100 one way for a … More China Southern Airlines

easyJet

Much like its Irish competitor Ryanair, easyJet is a budget airline that operates across the larger majority of European countries. For many people budget airlines are something to turn their nose up, but in my opinion they’re an incredible way of making the world around us more accessible to more of us. They might not have private … More easyJet

Ryanair

When you look up Ryanair online, the reviews usually aren’t too kind towards the airline. I can’t help but feel this is slightly unfair as it is an explicitly and proudly budget airline. I’m not sure if it’s because I grew up using the airline, but I actually think Ryanair  – and other budget airlines like AirAsia – … More Ryanair

Turkish Airlines

This past summer, for the first time, we travelled long haul with Turkish Airlines. The buzz around the airline has been on a steady incline over the last few years and particularly this year when they had an incredibly large advertising campaign as the airline partner of the Euros. Their advertising campaigns didn’t actually play … More Turkish Airlines
